It was back in May that we published one of our most popular stories so far in 2015. That story featured photos of Mary Barra’s 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant. Since then, we’ve been wondering when we would actually see General Motors’ CEO in the car and yesterday our prayers were finally answered.

Ms. Barra posted a photo of herself Saturday morning in the Black Z06 convertible which she’s nicknamed “The Beast” and then she joined 1.5 million automotive fans as she headed out for Saturday’s Woodward Dream Cruise.

[VIDEO] Another Look at George Talley's Stolen, Recovered and Now Restored 1979 Corvette

Last week at the GM Heritage Center, Detroit resident George Talley got the first look at his restored 1979 Corvette after General Motors graciously went to work on the car for the veteran in advance of this year’s Woodward Dream Cruise.

The Corvette will be part of Chevrolet’s display at the Woodward Dream Cruise, which is officially billed as the world’s largest automotive event.

We’ve been following the feel-good story of George Talley and his stolen 1979 Corvette. If you remember, George’s 1979 Corvette was stolen 34 years ago and last summer it showed up in Mississippi. GM’s Mark Reuss heard about the car and after seeing George on the evening news, decided to get involved and had the car shipped back to George’s Detroit home.

[VIDEO] GM Helping to Get Stolen C3 Corvette Back on the Road for Woodward Dream Cruise

GM is doing it again for an elderly Corvette enthusiast whose stolen Corvette was returned to him last year after being stolen on Jefferson Avenue in Detroit 33 years earlier.

You may remember that George Talley, then 71 years old, didn’t know how he would get his recovered Corvette back to Detroit from Mississippi, where it was finally located by AAA.

Well, GM’s Mark Reuss, executive vice president for GM Product Development, stepped in and offered to have GM ship the car back to George’s home in Michigan.

NASCAR star Kurt Busch doesn’t just like driving cars on the race track.

In fact, he was among the thousands of ordinary enthusiasts who turned out last week for the annual Woodward Dream Cruise that runs along 19 miles of Woodward Avenue through seven Michigan communities.

Busch brought his fully restored 1961 Corvette and 2014 Chevy SS (modified with a supercharger) and participated Thursday in the 20th annual event, where the car is the star, not the driver, as he headed to Michigan International Speedway for Sunday’s weekend’s Michigan 400.
